Helios is an efficient full displacement motor yacht of 288 foot (88m) designed exclusively for the
Benetti Design Innovation Project.
Designer Horacio Bozzo has chosen clean, modern and sleek exterior lines. Massive
superstructures have been avoided and ample exterior spaces with relaxing areas are disposed on
her six decks. The aim of the project was to design a yacht that despite of her considerable size
still looks as a family yacht.
Performance + Capabilities
Helios is powered by twin 3516B Caterpillar engines of 2525 kW and by controllable pitch
propellers. She achieves 18+ knots with a trans-pacific range of 6000 nautical miles.
Helios Style and Accomodation
Styling ideas such as the unusual location of the swimming platform stairs and the elegant waist
are among the innovative features. The stairs have been shifted forward leaving an unobstructed
balcony area right on the aft main deck. The low and wide hull shape in the stern evolves into an
aggressive profile towards the bow giving a muscle look.
Helios accommodates 12 + 2 guests on board and 29 crew.
